New, 1 comment

Denver, CO (Sports Network) – Third-year running back Darren McFadden had the best day of his professional career, rushing for three touchdowns and catching another score, as the Oakland Raiders put up the most points in franchise history during a 59-14 rout of the Denver Broncos at Invesco Field.

McFadden carried the ball 16 times for a career-high 165 yards for the Raiders (3-4), whose previous high for points in a regular season game was 52. The Redskins hold the NFL record for the most points in a single game, beating the New York Giants, 72-41, on November 27, 1966.

Jason Campbell completed 12-of-20 passes for 204 yards and two touchdowns for Oakland, which has won three straight in Denver for the first time since prevailing there in four straight contests from 1974-77.

Marcel Reece, Michael Bush, and Zach Miller also found the end zone for the Raiders, who racked up 508 yards of total offense, compared to 240 for Denver.

Kyle Orton connected on 12-of-29 passes for 198 yards, two touchdowns and an interception for the Broncos (2-5), who suffered their largest margin of defeat since losing to Kansas City, 56-10, on October 23, 1966.

Knowshon Moreno was the lone bright spot for Denver, catching two touchdown passes.

Oakland’s 59 points tied a record for the most points ever put up against the Broncos, who suffered a 59-7 loss to Kansas City on September 7, 1963.
